On 6th May there are elections for Parliament and for the local Southwark Council. I have been asked to send out the information below to the PRN mailing list for a hustings meeting being held in The Lane ward on Friday 30 April.
There are other local hustings meetings but there does not appear to be an organised web collecting point for information on these. Maybe in the next elections that might emerge. In the meantime here at least is information on one local hustings which might be of interest to many people on the Peckham Residents Network mailing list. This is a very useful opportunity to engage in the democratic process. Hope to see lots there!
Following discussions between all the political parties standing candidates in The Lane ward, there will be a cross-political party hustings. Not all those parties and candidates who were contacted were able to send representatives at short notice, nor was it possible to compile a list of email addresses this time.
